Here’s a secret that we hope doesn’t remain a secret for too much longer—anyone and everyone can refresh their skin!
If you are frustrated with your skin for drying out, being inflamed, or breaking out, the good news is that modifications to your skincare routine can combat all the above.
While you may not be able to control everything with your skin thanks to external factors, genetics and hormones, you can take your skincare into your own hands with these easy tips and tricks designed to help you refresh your skin.
There is a range of things you can do starting today that will drastically enhance your skin and make it feel as refreshed as ever. From the best skincare products to little life hacks, here is how you can get your best skin yet.
- Never go to sleep without washing your face
One of the most important things you can do to ensure your face remains fresh and vibrant is to always wash it before you go to sleep. Especially if you have gone through the day wearing make-up. Your skin will have been exposed to dirt, sweat and other external factors that can clog your pores, and allowing them to stay clogged will prevent your skin from glowing when you wake up in the morning. So all you have to do is take 30 seconds to cleanse your face and gently rub away the day. Trust us, this one is key.
- Make moisturizer your best friend
Moisturizer is one of the best ways to hydrate your skin. And when your skin is hydrated, it will look refreshed. But you need to be conscious about the type of moisturizer you use and when. For example, a daytime moisturizer with SPF+ should be applied when you start your day. An evening moisturizer with collagen should be applied before you go to bed. Switching these up will not do your skin any favors, as they were designed to help refresh your skin for a specific part of your day.
- Make masking a thing
If you are wanting your skin to truly feel and look refreshed, then you should consider using a Revival Mask from Roo Skin once a week. Designed with nutrient-rich ingredients that not only reduce signs of aging but enhance the vibrancy of your skin’s appearance, masking is one of the best things you can do to completely refresh it. The very best masks are the ones that are designed to both enhance cell turnover while also ensuring your skin gets the hydration it needs. The best time to apply a face mask is after you have cleansed your skin, and when you have around 15 to 20 minutes to spare.
- Exfoliate, But Gently
Masks are one way to exfoliate your skin. And so is using a skin brush or face polish. Exfoliating will refresh your skin by getting rid of any dead skin cells and freeing up your skin’s pores so they can truly shine. No matter what product you use, make sure that the exfoliation process is done so gently, as your skin is extremely sensitive! If you exfoliate too hard, you could end up making your skin inflamed instead.
- Wash your phone and pillowcase
These are two little tricks that are often forgotten when it comes to skincare. But your face will constantly be touching your pillowcase and your phone on a daily basis, and dirt and oil on both will gradually eventuate. That is why you should clean both frequently, otherwise, you risk both of these items clogging your pores. And when your pores are clogged, it is challenging for it to look refreshed.
- Simplify your skincare routine
More is not better when it comes to refreshing your skin. Instead of trying to use every single skincare product out there, do your research and choose quality skincare products that all complement one another. If you expose your skin to too many skincare products, your skin can actually become quite irritated and even inflamed. But if you are able to minimize the number of products it is exposed to, your skin will soak in the ingredients and result in a refreshed look.
- Sleep and drink water
Two more simple life hacks that you can do to refresh your skin is to get lots of sleep and drink lots of water. Sleep and water are the magic duo, and when you get enough of both your skin will automatically look more refreshed.
These seven tips and tricks are just the beginning of ways to refresh your skin. From lifestyle changes to the techniques you use during your skincare routine, you can get the skin you’ve always dreamed of.
